Dali Kubik One Soundbar Blk – It’s all about the sound

Possibly one of the best sound systems i have ever bought. After investing nearly £800 on a soundbar speaker and reading all the reviews , i chose to purchase this one , i sold my old bose lifestyle v-30 surround sound system which had too many wires but had an amazing sound reproduction , this product blew me away with the quality, depth and clarity of sound , it was incredibly easy to connect to my sony bravia t. With an optical lead , and bluetooth to my computer and i-phone even easier. In fact i wanted to play all the songs i had bought in the last decade to try out the quality . The remote is small and made of metal . There is also 3 settings for base sound on the back of the soundbar , some people have said there isn’t enough base with this product but there definitely is. Possibly one of the best sound systems i have ever bought.

I’m not sure what some of these other reviewers where on about. If this has the inputs you require and you are willing to spend this much, just go for it. I use it as a sound bar and a second sound system for playing music across bluetooth. Im using it with a panasonic tx p42gt30 plasma tv and have no issues at all with the optical connection. I recently watched whiplash and birdman with this thing turned up relatively high and i was blown away by how transparent this soundbar / all in one system is. Yes, the remote is a little fiddly (you do get used to it though) and i may add a subwoofer in the future (to add a bit more low end thump for films) but i could not be happier with this soundbar. I actually replaced a geneva model cinema with this soundbar and i am so glad that i did. The cinema was great for films but as soon as i put music on, it was just to boxy. The kubik one is certainly one of the best all in one systems on the market (some people may prefer the naim muso but i actually prefer the kubik one and im a bit of a naim fan). To be very picky, the treble can be occasionally a little harsh and blockbuster movie soundtracks would benefit from a subwoofer but any negative comment about this product seems unfair to me.

Really great sounding system. Really great sounding system. I have it connected to a samsung tv via optical and a sonos bridge via analogue. I appear to be one of the lucky ones with the new metal controller, though it’s rarely used as i control the whole lot using a harmony control system.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Possibly one of the best sound systems I have ever bought
  • It’s all about the sound
  • Sounds stupendous!

5star sound- but panasonic incompatibility. Just replaced a yamaha yas105 with a dali kubik 1. The sound is way better, with a massive improvements in dialogue clarity. I also bought it because of the ir learning facility ( to be able to use your tv remote to control the sound bar too) well that’s ok for most people but it turns out it doesn’t work with panasonic tvs. In fact it will cause you all sorts of problems. To cut a long story short richer sounds york were brilliant and contacted dali who admitted the ir learning doesn’t work with panasonic remotes ( my cheap yamaha worked fine) we managed to reset the soundbar disabling the remote learning facility. So i use the rubbish remote supplied by dali alongside my panasonic tv remote. Richer sounds have found a work around and that’s to replace your panasonic remote with a logitech harmony one which should work.

High hopes in the begining, but disappointed in the end. Very disappointedly the usb connection is limited to 16bit/48khz, much lower than the advertised 24bit/96khz. Say goodbye to the bass effects of the movie films, because without onboard dolby/dts decoder tv-s and dvd/bluray players discard the lfe channel when they downmix dolby 5. What use of a very expensive and supposedly high quality equipment when you are not able to listen to high quality content?.

I thought about buying a sonos playbar for a long time, but every time i heard it, i was underwhelmed by the muffled sound quality. I was beginning to doubt if i’d find something that fitted under my telly that was remotely comparable to proper speakers. And then i heard the kubik one. The sound is truly stunning – an event every time you play a new piece of music. So detailed, clear and lifelike. I’ve been going through all my fave tracks listening to them afresh. One drawback though is the lack of any eq settings apart from a switch for bass level on the back. Whilst i’m able to change the settings for my music via my phone or laptop, for tv i’m stuck with the default setting. This is amazing for movies but i personally find the zingyness at the high end a little tiring when i’m trying to watch a documentary or itv on a saturday night.
